Many businesses import Open Source Software without paying, contributors export it without being paid - where is the business model?
This talk covers some challenges and discoveries experienced over the last 15 years of running a company that implements Open Source software. Working against the tide of messages from the large IT & software companies, it has been a journey of discovery in a rapidly changing environment.
I will briefly describe how I came to discover what is now known as Open Source, and the motivations for starting a company in 1999 with the purpose of implementing free software in to businesses. I will share with you some of the business and Open Source principles I now use, and discuss the models of other Open Source businesses.
